Happy Mother's Day!
Today was just wonderful. I've been utterly spoiled by the boys, and even got to have a cuppa in bed - although I didn't get my lie in, as a certain wee monster woke me up by jumping on top of me, with a big brickies bum and all...
Because I became a GTA Heist widow, last night I spent ages focusing on self care: I plonked myself in a roasting hot bath, did my eyebrows, thought about shaving my legs, and pinned my hair up. It's been so long since I've had both the time and the energy to, and it was lovely to have a little familiarity again. An old routine I used to do nightly.
Dress; Dorothy Perkins
Brooch; vintage, gift from a lovely friend
Shoes; c/o Barratt
And can we just talk about how glorious this dress is?! Dorothy Perkins had an amazing A/W collection last year, and I not only picked this up, I found the grey beauty from January's outfit post tucked away in the sale items too. No, you can never have too many polkadots!
It felt really good to spend some time on myself and make a little effort. I dont leave the house often, and I find it really difficult mustering up the motivation to take care of myself and flick on a little make up when all I really want to do is sleep.
I sadly didn't get to see any of my amazing mother figures today, but I've spoken to them and had a good old giggle. I was also reminded how important it is to appreciate them, and although I don't buy into these kind of holidays normally, mothers day seems to strike a chord that way.
My mum and I are closer than ever, and I genuinely don't know what I'd do without her - she's been my mam, my dad, my rock, my everything. She's just the best - I wrote a big post about her last year, and this year I got to treat her for once too! Thank you Mam for being so amazing, sarcastic, and disgustingly hilarious. We love you!
I hope wherever you are, whatever you're doing, you're having a wonderful day and spending your Sunday with people you love and care about!
Meanwhile, we'll be spending the rest of the day in a chocolate-induced coma thanks to this monstrosity... Trust Andrew and Brandon to find my two favourite things combined - COOKIE PIZZA!
